MY EXPERIENCE:

I saw this palette in some review and on digging in details of Sleek makeup's i-Divine palettes I liked Oh So Special (OSS) the most it really is So Special. All the palettes were tempting but this one is really so special as it has got most of the shades that suites my choice esp Ribbon captured my eyes and heart. I read many reviews including that of Sara Hassan and knew that I made the right choice. The next step was to get it so I started knocking the doors of many online stores in Pakistan, few had it out of stock and few were charging heavy amount for my desire. Finally Beauty Unleashed came to my rescue and in the reasonable prices and free delivery provided me with my desired dream palettes OSS and Blush by 3 in Lace. Have a look @ my HAUL.
I was so happy when I had this Sleek palette from Sleek makeup in my hands. On opening it I could feel my eyes shining and my cheeks glowing with joy. I loved it and was glad that my Dream Palette made my dream come true. Every single shade of OSS was what I ever wanted.
OSS has 7 matte shades Bow, Ribbon, Pamper, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir. the rest of the 5 shades are shimmery i.e Organza, Gift Basket, Glitz, Celebrate and Gateau. The shimmers are more pigmented than the mattes. Few mattes are chalky and need a strong primer to help them show and stick to the lids. Some shades have an issue of fall outs. But the colour choice of this Palette makes it a winner and a heart throb for me. Let's Review all the 12 shades individually from Left to Right of the palette starting from the upper left corner.
Used in a Makeup Look here.
BOW:
It is a very light shade a kinda' skin shade. Good to be used on brow bone for matte eye makeup look. It is a bit chalky shade, needs a eye primer to show and stick to the lids.
Oh So Special~ BOW
ORGANZA:
The second shade in the row is Organza and it is a shimmery shade kinda' pink frosty shade. It blends well and can be worn alone for a simple look.
Oh So Special~ ORGANZA
RIBBON:
This shade won my heart even before I bought OSS. but it turned out to be heart breaker as despite being such a fruity pink shade it is really chalky and fall outs is obvious. It behaves well with a primer underneath. Still love this shade.
Oh So Special~ RIBBON
GIFT BASKET:
Another shimmer in the row. It is a brown shade with golden shimmer. Highly wearable shade. Equally good for night and day time eye makeup.
Oh So Special
GLITZ:
This one is another winner of the palette it is a grey silver combo. I love this one as it is a best choice for night esp for smokey look.
Oh So Special~ GLITZ
CELEBRATE:
This shade caught me with a surprise as I didn't notice it earlier in reviews and pictures but on first swatch I knew this will be used more than the other shades as it is a really beautiful shimmer dusty dark mauve shade with maroon shimmer. Loving it rather celebrating it!!! 
Oh So Special~ CELEBRATE
PAMPER:
It is the first shade, from left, in the lower row. It is a very soft pink and very chalky like other mattes in the palette. Good to be used in pair with other pinks.
Oh So Special~ PAMPER
GATEAU:
This shade also gets-you by surprise. As it seems pink but when applied it turns into yellowish golden shade with pink undertones. Nice shade to be worn on eyes to surprise the on-lookers.
Oh So Special~ GATEAU
THE MAIL:
This is a matte skin brown shade, but not that chalky as other mattes. Good to be used with the other browns in the palette.
Oh So Special~ THE MAIL
BOXED:
Its a matte brown and not that chalky, I guess the matte browns in this palette are not chalky like the matte pinks. I use this shade to contour my face mixed, to lighten a bit, with The mail.
Oh So Special~ BOXED
WRAPPED UP:
A dark chocolate brown matte shade. Best to deepen the crease line and it can be used with a wet liner brush to line and define around the eyes.
Oh So Special~ WRAPPED UP
NOIR:
The Black Beauty of this palette, a winner shade of Sleek Makeup i-Divine palettes. It has fall outs issue and being a darkest shade, it's fall outs can be a mess, so one has to be very couscous using this. It can be applied as a liner with wet liner brush to line and define the eyes. Best for that DARK SMOKEY eye look.
Oh So Special~ NOIR
Applicator:
Now as I started using brushes for my eye makeup this seems useless. But it is a good applicator esp if you are not using any primer, which is not highly recommended, you can use it to apply the chalky shades it really does help on that. I like the long length of this one with double ended sponges.

SWATCHES:
Swatches are without any primer/base.
